Iraq via Gulf Air

GULF AIR new CEO Samer Majali was on board the airline’s introductory Baghdad flight and at a press conference on landing confirmed the carrier’s plans to not only add Iraq’s capital to its network but also Basra, Erbil, Najaf and Solamnia.  He emphasised that the Gulf Air hub at Bahrain was an ideal connecting point to these major Iraq centres.  “Iraq has enormous commercial potential for Gulf Air and building on our experience and knowledge of operating there over many years, our aim is to become the market leader operating regular services to five key cities within the country." www.gulfair.com
